    My weight has taken an upswing too recently. I was down to 325 and weighed myself today and am a 334. I blame it on my lack of energy and poor discipline when it comes to eating lunch at work. I gotta start doing better because I get weighed again on 10/15 at my doctor's appointment at the VA Hospital in Marion, IN. It doesn't help that my appointment is with a doctor who I have never seen before who has already taken it upon himself to change a few of my medicines. I am gonna try to stay positive then, but I can see me asking how or why he would do that with no input from me. That stresses me out and when I am stressed out I usually eat more.

    The one at Fort Harrison State Park? I jogged/walked in that. 40 minutes flat. My 5 year old did the kids fun run and finished 4th in his age group. He would have won but he felt sorry for me and didn't leave me in his dust until halfway through.

    I met with my nutritionist and found out that I have gained back 15 pounds of the first 30 that I took off. We rallied around and made a plan for me to start writing down everything that I eat and drink in a journal and count the calories. I have been drinking a lot of calories. I will be talking with her on a weekly basis on the phone and monthly office visits. This is a great free programs for disabled veterans.

    Day one of writing down everything I eat. Total calories 2270. Only 70 above what I shot for. The VA gave me a great book that has most restaurants and most foods that I can think of. It is called The Calorie KIng Calorie Fat and Carbohydrate Counter. I like it because it is small but packs a ton of information. My only complaint is the writing is too small. Ok for me but someone with glasses may have problems. Gotta do weekly weigh-ins as well.

    I should have got in on this, down 60 pounds for the year (but I kind of cheated.) I still need to lose another 30 or so, but I'm heading in the right direction, eating good, regular healthy home-cooked meals, have lost about a pound a week for the last 5 weeks. The only fast food I've had in the last three months was a visit to Taco Bell where I had one regular beef taco, one bean burrito, and a potato burrito.

    Drinking calories was the biggest reason I gained weight to begin with. Do you have a smartphone? Try my fitness pal. Myfitnesspal.com is good for tracking calories to.

    I was doing good with drinking up calories except at work where I ended up drinking 2 non-diet sodas. Today I did much better and ended up under my 2200 calorie goal. I used some almonds in between meals to help with cravings. It worked pretty good tonight because usually I feel really hungry. I ate about a dozen or so almonds and drank 20 ounces of water with them. Now back to work tomorrow and hopefullyI can keep my discipline and end up around the 2000 calorie mark. I will have to check out that myfitnesspal website. Unfortunately my crappy old cell phone that I have works poorly. My biggest problem seems to be late night eating.

    I also have not been exercising any lately, mainly because of my work environment is a fast paced job where I am always on my feet, there is no sitting and there are times when we climb ladders and deal with heavy car parts. By the time I get home I can barely walk or even go up and down stairs. I am going to start very slowly incorporating exercise in with me doing some weight training and do slow walking on the treadmill on my days off. I am hoping the weight starts coming off and maybe a year from now I will be closer to my goal. If I could get down to 210-220 lbs I would feel much better. I know that all of this weight puts a lot of stress on my knees and ankle.

    I don't eat white flour torrtilla's. 200 calories for the ones in tb burritos. I do eat a chicken cantina bowl pretty regularly(qdobas naked burrito bowls are a lot better), but that's the only taco bell I touch. You can request whole wheat buns at Arbys. Other than That the only fast food I eat is subway, quizznos, firehouse subs, and the healthy wrap place at the mall.

    I was doing pretty good recently until my daughter wound up in Riley Hospital last week and is expected to be there another 10-14 days. I have done some emotional eating and have provided a bad influence for my other daughter also been eating poorly when working. Hopefully my work hours decrease with people coming back from medical leave and the hiring of new people. I was very impressed with my daughter who is staying at multiple places while I work. She came to me last night and said that we needed to eat healthier. We are going grocery shopping tonight and we are going healthy. It was so cute to see my eight year old making a shopping list for today. She is wise beyond her years.

    Actually ran the entire 4.6 miles without walking at the Drumstick dash. Had never done more than 2 miles on the treadmill before. 49:40. Feet are sore, rested yesterday but got on the elliptical for half an hour today.

    My daughter got out on Wednesday and I was so glad to have her home. The damage was done though, I weighed 10 pounds more since she had gone in. I am going to be working less hours, so that will be more opportunity to walk on the treadmill and eat better with my daughters. I have to call the VA and tell the nutritionist about my weight gain so I expect a butt chewing from her.

    Uhh... Starting to slowly find the weight that I have "lost", although its not surprising since I have been through some stress and heartache recently as well as some other factors that always hang around. I might have to go back to my subway diet before too long...

    Well, I finally got in contact with my nutritionist from the VA and was surprised that she didn't chew me a new one for gaining 10 pounds in two weeks. She said since my daughter was in Riley for the past two weeks and that I had stress from having to work and care for my other daughter she expected weight gain for me. Not only did I gain 10 pounds, my daughter gained 6 pounds. I guess the not wanting to cook and eating out was way too often. Tonight she really impressed me though. She came to me to help make an exercise program for me and her to walk on the treadmill together, do some stretching, lift weights and stick to an 1800 calorie diet plan. I think with my reduced work hours this week we can get everything started and on the right track.

    I just wanted to mention Ken Berger is doing a great series of Nutrition in the NBA. Part 1 is about the Lakers and how they feed their players. Great read and that is mainly whst I eat now after I changed my life style a few years ago. it is unorthodox compared to what some teach. I believe what they teach is really outdated. I agree Carbs, Bread and grains are terrible for your body not good for you like so many believe. I highy recommend reading the series even talks about Roy Hibberts diet. I really like what the Lakers are doing it is really good for your body imo

    Well, I had gotten way up to 367 when I had to sit for five weeks not able to work for a knee injury. After that I was diagnosed with pneumonia when I went to get my release to work. I missed a week after that so they could do CT scans and send me to a pulmonary specialist up in Ft. Wayne. I have had pneumonia 3 times in the past year. They scheduled a bronchoscopy but never did it because the specialist asked about inhaling chemicals or asbestos. I was in the military and changing brakes that were 30-50 years old that had asbestos brake shoes. She said that she thinks it is just scar tissue but I have to do a CT scan every 2 months. My civilian doctor put me on a diet pill earlier this year. When I went in to see the doctor last week he was a little ticked because my weight was down to 347. He told me that he would give me one more 3 months supply of the Adipex. He also told me that if I did not lose at least 30 pounds in three months he won't give it to me anymore. He also said that he would prefer a 40-50 pound drop. After telling my nephew about this he became a savior because he was going to get a membership at a new gym in town. He asked me to be his workout buddy. So I went and got my membership and we start Monday. I think it will be the best 20$ a month bill that I have ever had. I weighed myself in clothes this morning and was 337 pounds. Now I just have to work my butt off.

    I'm starting up again after the first of the year. My weight is all the way back up to what I started at in this thread, around 330.

    Just when I was about ready to throw in the towel, my nephew called me to tell me that a new gym opened up in town and he asked if I needed a workout buddy because he was getting a membership there. I went home and got mine too. Nice looking place for 20$ a month. The biggest thing that impressed me was the fact that during the week it is open 24 hours a day and on the weekends it is 7am-7pm. We are starting up Monday. He wants to work out three times a week and mainly with lifting weights. My plan is to go with him and do the weights with him and after we are done stay there and do my cardio stuff. I think I will at least do some cardio 4 days a week. I figure weekly weighing with their scale should tell me if I am on the right track. I would like to drop below 300 in 3 months so I can tell the doctor I am serious about wanting to get in better health. That is my immediate goal. My long term goal would be getting down to 215 within 2 years.

    I went to go take a tour of the new gym that I am going to be using and was surprised that no one under 13 can come in and workout. I had my 9 year old daughter with me and she couldn't even go on a tour with me. I told them I would come back after Christmas and do a tour with one of my workout buddies. I still have my nephew and a guy I work with is getting a membership their too so on the nights that we work together closing the store (usually three times a week) we could go workout since it is open 24 hours on the week and 7-7 during the weekend. I am thinking that Thursday will be me starting toward of my goal of losing at least 30 pounds in three months, even though the doctor told me he would like to see 40-50 pounds off of me. My goal is 4 times a week for right now and increasing to 5 nights a week in a month or so. I know that my nephew is wanting to focus on free weights so I figure on those days I can do the weights using a lighter weight and more repetition. When he has to go at 9pm I will get some time in on the elliptical machine and exercise bike on my own.

    Hey all....medical problem here. Of course being 62 lbs don't help but I have sciatica down my left leg and partially the right too. Couple that with diabetic neuropathy and I have trouble sleeping. In fact, I now sleep on an ice pack under my hip and that helps some but I'm still waking up every couple of hrs. I cannot use a treadmill (Dr said NO!) because of the hip and worn out knee. So..........advice, please. (believe it or not, I called a chiropracter in Whiteland yesterday...he also practices acupuncture, I'm waiting to hear back from him).

    Just weighed myself this morning and came in at 326. I haven't been able to get to the gym due to working but hopefully after the snow tomorrow subsides and everything gets cleared up I can get going and drop the weight off.

    Well, I was de-railed after going into the VA hospital for a little bit for pneumonia. My scale must be broken because they weighed me in at 346. After 2 days at the hospital I was down to 338. I went back yesterday and was 335 (dressed with a jacket and boots). I gotta eat low sodium and have to eat better. I will keep everyone updated on my progress.
